[review] Fuzzrocious Ram The Manparts (by Tim)


At NAMM the guys from Fuzzrocious brought their Ram the Manparts with a bit of a twist; the pedal now comes in blue instead of red and has a slightly different wording as well. To give you a quick overview; this is an extreme fuzz pedal, even at moderate settings (around 12 o’clock) and is probably best suited for people with an appetite for destruction. It features a volume control, a boost toggle and also a “voltage sag”, which basically means that you can starve the chip inside to get some interesting sounds. Turn the right dial all the way down and your sound will completely disappear!

[review] Electro-Harmonix XO Key 9 Electric Piano Machine (by Tim)

General impressions

The EHX Key 9 comes with just enough buttons and inputs, you don’t feel overwhelmed when faced with all the control dials. The operation of the pedal is also very easy and straightforward; you get a dry and a wet volume and two control dials. Usually Ctrl 1 is for the intensity of the effect, Ctrl 2 is to determine the speed. Last but not least there’s the voicing dial with 9 sounds to choose from (hence the name). The pedal comes with a DC adapter, it uses 9 volts like most other pedals, so it won’t be too much of a hassle to put on your pedalboard.

[review] Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight - Cocked Talking Wah (by Tim)


The EHX Cock Fight is what is called a “static wah”, meaning you have a regular wah pedal stuck at a certain frequency. You can of course change this sound by turning the freq. knob on the pedal. In total there are two way modes, called “cry” (more like a regular wah) and “talk” (which sounds a bit like a voice box). As an added bonus you also get a built-in fuzz in the pedal, which can be put pre-signal or post, which gives you more sounds to play with. The biggest feature in my opinion is the fact that you get the option to use an expression pedal as well, which turns the pedal into a regular wah. I do recommend this to get the maximum potential out of the Cock Fight. The pedal comes in a big box with a complimentary DC Adapter, but you can also put this on your pedalboard with any 9V power supply in liking to a Boss pedal.
